In Part 2, the author developed a grid application written in C# on Neudesic’s Grid Computing Framework. Now he shows how to run such an application going through the following steps:

  • setting up a database
  • configuring the VS solution (*.cscfg)
  • running the application locally
  • viewing the grid
  • viewing the grid task
  • viewing the results
  • running the application in the cloud

The author also makes a recommendation for testing the solution in 4 different environments: development, QA, staging and production. The article closes with performance and tuning considerations.
